Updating bmw navigation
Life-Time Code: Once you enter a lifetime code in your BMW, you will never need to enter another code again! Usually, BMW releases twice new versions per year such as "2017-1″ & "2017-2″ therefore the life-time code is a much better choice.
Which means you never have to buy another code again! The FSC code is tied to the vehicle VIN and to the exact map version.
If you get the wrong VIN or map version, the FSC code will not work, and we will NOT be able to refund you as we will have already obtained the FSC code.
For retrofitted head units we need the donor VIN/CHASSIS number.
I noticed that a few new freeway exits in my town are missing. Releases usually come out every year and are available for purchase at your friendly steeler.
Scroll down to the last item in the menu called “Navigation System Version“. No other version will work on this car (MOTION, MOVE, NEXT etc.) so make sure you choose the right version for your car.
Over a year ago, BMW announced that eventually, all new cars would be updating map data OTA.
There is an easy way to tell what version you're currently running..the nav screen up, press the options button, and I think the entry is near the bottom of the list.
and you have the factory firmware you will need a firmware update to update using USB due to a bug in the firmware.
You are welcome to try, however the update will most likely fail at 93.7% and abort updating.
